The Canon PowerShot G1X Mark III combines the power and versatility of a DSLR with the simplicity and size of a compact camera. An evolutionary leap from the award winning G1X II, it squeezes a DSLR sized sensor into a truly portable form, making it the perfect tool for social media moguls, inspired content creators, and casual photographers alike.
Large 24.2 Megapixel APS-C Sensor
Realise the potential of your creativity with the combination of an APS-C sized 24.2 megapixel image sensor, a powerful DIGIC7 image processor and Canon's market leading Dual Pixel AF focusing system. Equally comfortable shooting razor sharp photos or silky smooth video, the G1X III is designed for capturing stills at up to 9 frames per second or Full HD video at 60fps to help tell a more immersive and engaging story.
Versatile 3x Zoom Lens
The 35mm equivalent 24-72mm zoom lens complements the convenience of this pocket sized jack-of-all trades. Its 3x zoom range delivers a wide-angle perspective for sweeping landscapes, selfies and shooting in confined spaces, while the longer end of the focal range delivers up-close detail for beautiful portraits and magnifying far-away objects. A minimum focal distance of just 10cm opens up the world of macro style photography, allowing you to bring out the detail and texture of plants, insects and the things too small for the human eye to appreciate.
5-Axis Optical Image Stabiliser
A built-in Optical Image Stabiliser ensures razor sharp results when shooting in low-light situations. Reducing the amount of blur caused by camera shake, the 5-axis stabiliser also works in video mode, equipping you with the ability to achieve smooth, fluid video clips without the need for a gimbal or steadycam.
Fast Dual Pixel CMOS AF Performance
The first Canon compact to feature Dual Pixel CMOS Auto Focus, the G1X Mark III is in a class all of its own. Seen only in Canon DSLR and mirrorless cameras until now, the proven Dual Pixel AF system delivers ultra-fast, precise focusing performance that is capable of speeds as quick as 0.09 seconds. Its 49 AF points are combined with blistering responsiveness, ensuring you’re equipped to freeze even the most fleeting moments with razor sharp clarity. An advanced tracking mode is perfect for unpredictable movement such as kids or pets, allowing you to concentrate on the composition of your image to nail that perfect moment.
Perfect for YouTube Content
Its Dual Pixel AF is also great for shooting video. The smooth yet quiet focusing action during filming makes it more natural to the viewer when transitioning between focus points, much like the human eye. The smooth action is complemented by the G1x’s Touch and Drag AF functionality, which allows you to simply drag your finger between two subjects to create cinematic style focus pull effects that transition the viewers' attention between two points of interest seamlessly.
Time-Lapse Movie Modes
Expand your creative boundaries with built-in Time-Lapse movie modes. The convenience of being able to process the images in-camera is combined with 3 pre-defined scene types makes it easy to achieve professional quality time-lapse results without the hassle of copying the images to a desktop or laptop computer for processing.
Panoramic Shot Mode
Sweeping panoramas are also easy to achieve with the G1X III's panoramic shot function. Gone are the days of processing shots in Photoshop, the G1X can automate the procedure in-camera. Simply pan across the scene you wish to capture and let the powerful DIGIC7 processor stitch them into one seamless image automatically.
Vari-Angle LCD Display
An intuitive shooting experience is delivered via Canon's proven Vari-Angle LCD Touch Screen. Made from scratch-resistant reinforced glass, the 3-inch display features a 1.04 million pixel resolution to deliver maximum image detail and sharpness. Its variable angle design is great for selfies and extremely high or low angles compositions, while the capacitive touch functionality makes navigating menus, changing settings, reviewing images, playing back videos and selecting autofocus points a truly instinctive experience.
Bright OLED Electronic Viewfinder
The bright 2.3 million dot organic EL viewfinder is perfect for shooting in extremely bright conditions or scenarios requiring critical sharpness. It offers accurate colours and approximate 100% coverage for pixel perfect compositions.
NFC + Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Connectivity
NFC & integrated Low-Power Bluetooth technology enables the camera remain constantly connected to your smart device for hassle free transfer of your photos and videos for instant sharing or editing. A must for the social media savvy, the Bluetooth connection seamlessly switches to a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi connection for fast transfers to your phone or tablet, ensuring photos and videos are ready to be shared on Facebook, YouTube Instagram almost immediately.
Weather Sealed Construction
With its dust and moisture resistant construction, DSLR style manual controls and support for RAW image capture, the Canon PowerShot G1X Mark 3 is ideal for creatives looking for the perfect go-anywhere, shoot-anything workhorse without the bulk of a DSLR or Mirrorless camera.
